Posted: Mon, 11th May 2020

Various sources have been producing webinars across many topics relevant to sport and clubs during COVID-19 and beyond that will be beneficial for clubs to watch.

Sport NSW - Timeout Talks

Sport NSW, the Australian College of Physical Education and the NSW Office of Sport have collaborated to create the Timeout Talks - #unitedforsports webinar series . The webinar series is a free resource for the industry that aims to keep our sporting community connected and united so we can return as one.

Timeout Talks will offer a wide selection of webinar topics, discussing key points pertinent to organisations and clubs during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as sessions that provide valuable personal and professional development opportunities for individuals and organisations across all levels of sport.

Inside Media and Sport

Tuesday, 12 May: 6.00pm - 7.00pm

In the present era, the close interaction between the media and sport are indispensable. The two feed one another with sport providing a wide range of content for the media every day, while media provides publicity and a connection to the population for sport. The media has an undeniable role in developing awareness around sport and awakening public consciousness, achieved by spreading novel ideas and displaying leadership and guidance to our society.

In this webinar, Simon Hill (Football Commentator & Presenter, Fox Sports Australia) will delve into the relationship that exists between Sport and Media and consider how the impacts of COVID-19 will change the future consumption of sport for fans across Australia.

Mental Health for Sport

Thursday, 14 May: 6.00pm - 7.00pm

COVID-19 has had a far-reaching, crippling effect on sport worldwide. Physical health has been affected, so too has mental health and we understand that athletes, coaches, administrators and volunteers may be experiencing a mix of emotions at this time. This webinar will look at the signs and symptoms of poor mental health and help provide an understanding of your emotions.

Our expert presenters will suggest strategies to help maintain both good mental and physical health, with the short-term effects on physical and mental health influencing the long-term impacts. It is more important than ever to implement strategies and look after your mental and physical health, as what you do now will make a difference to how you perform in the future.

Presenters for the evening include Debbie Swibel (Director, Mental Health Management) and Dan Hunt (Director, Mental Health Movement & Former NRL Player).
